We previously blogged that residents have been demanding that the Moretown Landfill get the off-site odors under control. They organized a group called Citizens for Landfill Environmental Accountability and Responsibility (CLEAR). The Times Argus is reporting that the city has been holding public meetings on the issue, and citizens have been appearing to complain about the odors, and about the layer of dust found on their cars and homes, also coming from the landfill. The city is looking at various options, including limiting what types of waste the landfill can accept, but while they are considering their options, the smell is so bad that residents, like Max Fortune, are becoming increasingly frustrated. Landfills have the capability to restrict odors to the site, and residents have the right to enjoy their own properties free of landfill odors.
We are closely watching this situation. Todd Hageman, along with Vermont attorney Anthony Roisman and Vermont Law School graduate, attorney Zak Johnson, represent individuals across the county who are impacted by off-gassing landfills.
